Mike's an uber knowledgeable, upbeat, patient gent, and "merits" your business. I've been dealing with Merritt since they were still Packard Farm in 1974. Michael Grimes,
Max Merritt Packard Parts, (317) 736-6233, Ext. 103 mike@packardparts.com

And for mechanical and electrical parts only, 1935-56, remember Jeff Adkins, Moose Motors, Penngrove (Petaluma in CA's North Bay), packardguy54@sbcglobal.net (707) 792-9985
Again, Jeff is a lifelong Packard wrench, rebuilds components, inc. pressure plates with the Packard jigs, starters, carbs, etc., as well as supplies drum brake parts for everything Auburn through Zephyr, to hobbyists as well as regional auto parts stores.

Then there's Mike Chirco, taking over Tucson Packard from ailing father/founder Sandy.https://www.tucsonpackard.com

We support these knowledgeable, honest gentlemen or wind up with so much garage art. Please tell them Mike, '47 Super Clipper, Walnut Creek, CA referred you. Don't let the bleak midwinter doldrums get to you.

And don't forget our own Howard Hanson, HH56; encyclopedic, unstinting knowledge freely shared.

Mike(su8overdrive), the YouTube link above takes me to something other than what you probably intended.

Maybe it's just me? But, I don't get the connection between the third last line and the YouTube video. From your last line in the original post it appears a song should play BUT.....what I get is a video about killing mosquitoes in 90 seconds. Maybe there's a subconsciuus message somewhere in that? Hold on! I just clicked on the video for about the eighth time and got a beautiful and uplifting choral arrangement, so now it's Mike! Now I see the connection.

By the way I completely agree about HH56, who I visited back in 2014, the same day I visited you. Howard is a wealth of knowledge particulary post WW2 Packards. Besides that knowledge, which he so willingly shares, his hand-on been-there done-that, insights are invaluable not to mention the numerous photgraphs, diagrams and insights from Packard technical articles and publications which he posts.
